Rogers, Robert Turtle's Big Dream! Nature- Animals,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Theater
Once upon a time there was a talkative little turtle who had an ambitious dream - to fly! He was so captivated by the idea of seeing the world from way up in the air, that he spoke about it constantly to all the other animals in the forest, wondering how he could accomplish his goal. Based on a Native American legend, this is a play about reaching beyond the every day and striving to do more, even when it seems to be impossible.

Handy, Spook Songs of the Great Depression and Today History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
When the Great Depression hit, a whole new genre of American folk music was born. Songs about the Dust Bowl, the Great Migration, bread lines and soup kitchens, the New Deal and times of triumph and struggle circulated throughout labor camps, churches and family gatherings. These songs depicted down-to-earth everyday realities of the American laborer and farmer, the hungry and the industrious, centuries old traditions and the transition to a new modern society. It can be surprising how many of these old songs speak of challenges we face today and how new songs written about today's America can so resemble the songs of the Great Depression. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

The Games Man, TREVOR The On-The-Go High-Octane Special Other,
Performing Arts- Other
AN ENERGETIC EVENT FOR ACTIVE PEOPLE Although we won't be running the entire time, this is an active event popular with college students, teens, and older school age children with energy to spare. It's an hour of active, non-sports, everybody-wins, strategy games that challenge you no matter what your skill levels. And, if breathers are needed, we'll sit down for a few Minute Mysteries to challenge their brains while their bodies rest. What kind of games? Try this: it takes team work for everyone to catch the runner in Line Cross, and it certainly is a challenge for one lone individual to hold everyone at bay in Smaug's Jewel. It's 1-on-1 competitive running in Elbow Tag, and everyone working together to get untangled in Knots. Lots of tag games, including Cross Tag, Blob, Rock Paper Scissors Tag, and the incomparable Go Ten. Plus unusual team games like Dho-Dho-Dho, Lemonade, and Elves Giants & Wizards! All in all, it's a solid hour of excitement, a total blast, and a might lot of FUN! Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project.
